Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: An oddly exciting blend of tenderness, comedy and realistic despair, it touches life intimately at many points during its account of a lonely girl in a typical American small town.
Fresh: That George Stevens' direction captures the wistfulness of Katharine Hepburn's superb histrionism, and yet has not sacrificed audience values at the altar of too much drabness and prosaic realism, is an achievement of no small order.
Fresh: Stevens's talent for stepping away from the plotline and creating intimate, casual, and naturalistic moments is given plenty of opportunity here, as it would not be in his later superproductions.
Fresh: Hepburn is magnificent as the small-town social climber, although the script so softens Booth Tarkington's novel.
Katherine Hepburn is brilliantly heart breaking and sweet! What a wonderful Movie!
One of my favorites!!
I love this movie!! This is one of her best films. It's about a poor girl who falls in love with a wealthy man. This film is a treat to watch and a must buy!!
Thus movie us so precious!!! It captures your heart every second it's playing (and even after it's over!) Katharine Hepburn does a great job portraying this everyday girl, who is poor! And Fred MacMurray us charming and quite handsome as a man who is truly in love! It's a MUST SEE for any classic movie lover!! (of course u could be prejudice, as I am a HUGE Katharine Hepburn fan :))
